Hair Flowers

I've been ogling hair flowers from PforPrincess on Etsy for forever. Not a promo or treasury has gone by without me thinking "I should really include one of those sparkly flowers I love so much...". Here is more living proof of just how amazing these hair clips are. Sofie's birthday is coming up and I just had to treat the girls, but now I may have a sparkly flower clip addiction! OH and it's not just clips, but flowery headbands too!!
The girls are pretty rough on their things and I was really worried they would trash these flowers, but they are so well made. Sof & Lu have put these clips through the roughest of their tough outdoor play. Not only do they still look brand new, but all of the sparkles are intact and the grip is still firm. Talk about high quality! The princesses can battle dragons and still look like little ladies.

New Stuff

Wow, how the time has flown by! I can't believe it's already the end of July. We have had some definite craziness around here.
Thanks to the Handmade Kids series on Etsy, I have been a very busy girl. But...I somehow managed to put some new stuff together. I am very much in love with the eared hats and have been looking for any way to work them into sets with blankets. So I've come up with these two to start and more on the way as soon as my creative brain comes back to me.

There have been some interesting developments in the Sofie department this month. I was looking down at her little face talking to me one day and discovered an extra set of teeth growing behind her lower front two. I've never seen anything like it before. I think it's funny that she had these alien growths in her mouth, but never mentioned it to anyone. They seemed to be quite huge when I found them and their partners are loose, loose! She never mentioned that either.
She demanded a tooth pillow be made and has been bringing it with on her longer outings from home just in case the teeth fall out when she is away.

LuLu's Woobies began in October 2006 when my daughter Tallulah was almost 1.5 years old. I've always been a sewer. It only seemed natural to make baby blankets, especially when we realized how attached Lu was to her blanket "Greenie".

Above is Lu in May '05, just a couple weeks old with her woobie to the left in green minky stars. Her comfort ritual now involves hooking a finger through his very worn silky tag and sucking on it or her thumb, or both. We can always tell she's ready to wind down or go to sleep when she picks up Greenie and gets started on the tag.
